Ramifications of changing server name RRS feed

  • Question

  • If I change the name of my WHS from, say, "WHS" to "Server", will this cause any issues with the computers that are connected to it for backup? Will I have to go to each computer and reestablish a connection because the name has changed or will continue to backup without my intervention?

  • You may need to run C:\Program Files\Windows Home Server\discovery.exe to get it all sorted out again but other than that it should be OK.
